Genre and Technical Translation: Social, Textual, and Educational Exigence.
Eubanks, Philip
Journal of Business and Technical Communication, v12 n1 p50-70 Jan 1998

Suggests that when genre functions in the world are better understood, this understanding supports rather than undermines work in the classroom. (SG)
